Question a side of coals

I don't understand coal placement very well. I've heard people say place coals on the outer edges and the middle sometimes. Does the placement of the coals have to do with the bowl (phunnel, mod, etc.). Somebody help me out because I think coal placement may be the reason for some of my heat management problems.

It depends on the bowl and the heat needs of the tobacco. Placing them on the edge helps reduce the surface area being cooked. placing them in the center should be reserved for the end of a bowl and should not be done with a funnel or vortex bowl.

Please tell us your set up and we will be able to help you figure out the best way that will work for you.

I'm using a mod bowl on a 18' tall mya. I'd like to know the preferences of Nakhla DA and AF DA. I am also using AL Fakher Quicklites.

put the coal so it is to the edge, you dont really need to hang it off though unless you just cant prevent harshness. just make sure to move the coal ever 10-15 mins

make sure you have gap under the foil too

Depends on the bowl and the brand of shisha you're using.. Placing the coals on the outer edge of a standard egyptian bowl and working their way to the middle of the bowl as they die out is a good way to smoke a good session.
